A nonprofit that helps older adults learn how to use technology is going remote and expanding services to all five boroughs.
Digital Grandparents connects with senior citizens and older adults in the city interested in learning more about technology and the internet.
For the past year, Greenpoint resident William Knoff has been a tutor with Digital Grandparents.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the nonprofit is not only offering remote services so that older New Yorkers can learn from home, but Digital Grandparents is also teaching all senior citizens, no matter where in the city they live with Zoom.
Knoff says with so many older adults currently bound to their homes and some completely isolated from friends and family, he believes people need technology now more than ever.
